2 New COVID Deaths, 29 New Cases

Todd PittengerSeptember 27, 2021

There have been two new COVID related deaths and 29 new cases of the virus in Saline County since Friday.

According to the Saline County Health Department there are currently 671 active cases of the virus in the community.

Salina Regional Health Center reports they have 17 patients in the hospital battling the virus.

Overall, 148 people have now died in Saline County from COVID.

The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 and thus prevent mutation of the virus is:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Get tested if you feel unwell, even if you don’t believe it is COVID.

You can find testing centers at VaccinateSalineCountyKS.com/testing or contact your local medical provider.

  • Get vaccinated.

You can find a vaccine at vaccines.gov or contact your local medical provider.

  • Wear a mask, especially if you are not fully vaccinated. If you are fully vaccinated, wear a mask when in-doors in crowded spaces.
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and those with whom you do not live.
  • Do not travel to “hot spots.”

If you test positive, isolate immediately and be open and honest with COVID caseworkers about your contact.
